Warren Schreiber, a fighter on the front lines of political challenges facing New York City co-ops and condominiums, has been honored with a proclamation by the New York City Council.

"I am honored to present Warren with a City Council Proclamation for his continuous dedication to the community," says city councilmember Vickie Paladino (R-Queens), whose district includes the 200-unit Bay Terrace Cooperative Section 1, where Schreiber is board president. "Warren was truly deserving of this Proclamation, and I could not be more proud to be the city councilwoman who recognized him for his hard work."

In addition to his duties as co-op board president, Schreiber, 80, is a founding member of the Presidents Co-op & Condo Council (PCCC), an advocacy and think tank organization that represents more than 100,000 shareholders and unit-owners in New York City. The PCCC has been a vocal opponent of Local Law 97, the centerpiece of the city's ambitious Climate Mobilization Act, arguing that the new law will be an onerous burden for middle class co-ops and condos. Beginning next year, large co-ops and condos will have to reduce their buildings' carbon emissions below prescribed caps, or pay stiff fines. Schreiber is also the president of the Queens Civic Congress, second chair of Community Board 7, and a plaintiff in a lawsuit that is seeking to block the Climate Mobilization Act.

At a recent town hall meeting in Queens that drew more than 400 opponents of Local Law 97, Paladino called it "a direct attack on the middle class." She has introduced a bill in the city council that would push back implementation of the law by seven years.
